I expected this to go to Gobert.....Strange it didn't looking at both of their stat lines.

1/20 Big Man update:

Karl-Anthony Towns: 30/12/4/4/1 versus Suns

No award, unless needed for a tiebreaker. Why? Because Karl-Anthony Towns is soft, that's why: Timberwolves barely beat an Ayton-less Suns, at home, and needed a Derrick Rose game-winner to do it. Towns had twenty-eight in the first half, and finished with thirty.

Not inclined to give it to anyone tonight, unless needed for a tiebreaker: Towns and Adams did it against bad teams, and Cousins was, arguably, a net negative on defense.

Tough call: Drummond and Bagley had very similar games, both teams won at home, against good teams. Drummond's team had a slightly more impressive win, due to quality of opposition. Eh, **** it, I'll give it to the kid.
